Seth Thomas 100 year old reissue, the "Yorktown", ca 1905. Resembling in every way the carved case clocks made by many clockmakers in the mid 1800's, Seth Thomas sold a number of carved half column, carved splat, clocks. Some were weight powered, some spring such as this model. Interestingly the full label on the backboard, is overpasted with the Seth Thomas label, leading me to wonder if the clocks were not made by another maker. I cannot find any references about the Putnam and Yorktown in the Bulletins. The movement is 8 day, striking a cathedral gong. Gong base and pendulum bob are brass. Mahogany veneered case is 36 inches high, never cleaned, minor veneer chipping around the bottom, excellent carved splat, half columns, and paw feet. Metal dial pan is 12 inch square, paint very satisfactory, and signed by Seth Thomas. Great painted tablet with some flaking of the blue border. Inner scene of village, church, children, etc. is not flaking. Key lock door. Ly-Seth Thomas #1000.
